Kilian Jornet is coming to Colorado this August to attempt to steal Carpenter's record for Pike's Peak Marathon or something like that. I would love to see the finish, don't know if I will be awake after Leadville though, let alone in the mood to drive and watch the race. Now the question is, will Carpenter be running?
*Update: If Carpenter runs, which he always does, I want him to beat Kilian. Not that I have anything against him, they are both good guys - humble, it is just seeing Carpenter win being over twice Kilian's age, gives me hope as an older runner. Go Carpenter!
